New Sequence video

5 April, 2011 by

Iridium studios has released a “how to” video on how their brand new Xbox live game, Sequence, is played. This game manages to mash together a rhythm based RPG. An interesting first title from an independent game developer that has only been in existence since 2009!

The game itself is a rhythm-RPG which players use either the Xbox controller, Dance Mat or Guitar Hero guitar where they have to switch between 3 screens to either cast magic using Mana, defend against enemies or regenerate lost Mana.

As the video explains there are over 12 hours of gameplay, 90 minutes of recorded dialogue, and 28 tracks from Ronald Jenkees and Michael Wade Hamilton. The game will be released on Xbox Live in the US this month, however look for it in Europe soon.

PewPewPewPewPewPewPewPewPew Released Today

4 April, 2011 by

The incredibly well named, PewPewPewPewPewPewPewPewPew, has now been released on the Xbox Live Indie Games. This microphoned controlled indie title has been developed by Incredible Ape and the player and a friend can take control of the mic to spit hot fire at enemies in a relentless geometric onslaught.

Incredible Ape recommend the use of Rock Band microphones, but all Xbox mics will work with this title, but it’s best if there’s a slight distance between the mic and face.

Below is a video of the game in action:

Kung Fu Panda 2 Details Announced

30 March, 2011 by

THQ have today revealed details on the up and coming movie tie in of Kung Fu Panda 2 for Xbox, PS3, Nintendo DS and Wii due out in May – just in time for the new movie. The game starts with Po and the Furious Five travelling to save the world from a new threat to Kung Fu, with new enemies created by THQ in conjunction with Dreamworks themselves.

THQ have decided to utilise the Xbox’s Kinect and the U-Draw tablet on the Wii.

In the Xbox version you use the Kinect to firstly be taught Kung Fu by Po and learning the moves to defeat enemies after which you then become Po himself to block, punch, kick, dodge & duck your way through the new levels and environments from the film with no controller needed.

With the Wii you would use the U-Draw Tablet to control Po with the stylus to fight and defend Gongmen City. You battle old and new enemies against backgrounds that you can modify yourself. There is a drawing mode, where you can colour various pieces of character art and objects which will in turn populate in the story mode, making the game unique to each player.  There are also several awesome mini-games that can be enjoyed playing as the super cute baby Po.

The PlayStaion3 version sees you battling in more of a strategy style, learning Kung Fu moves such as acu-punches and kung fu curls  incorporating problem-solving skills to help master your talents under Po’s tutelage. One thing that is unsure at the moment is weather or not this will include Playstation Move features or not.

On the Nintendo DS you will be able to control Po using the stylus to unleash the awesome moves of kung fu against the game’s enemies. The DS also offers a card game called “Five Card Fu” which can be played in a single or two player game.  THQ promises this to be addictive. THQ have not announced any development for the 3DS at this time.

On paper this title promises to be an interesting game with loads of new features to try especially on Kinect and the Wii with the U-Draw tablet. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t follow the curse of movie tie-in games.

Exclusive content can be found at www.kungfupanda2game.com and will be added throughout April/May in lead up to it’s release.
